Did anyone noticed that the primecoin-gt.exe v.0.1.1 has a timestamp of 01/29/2011?  

Wow just installed this one and it found a block within the first 5 minutes!

Hey guys, I am getting ~300 pps and been mining for hours. Still no XPMs. Is this normal? (and yes I've read the threads!)

Not sure if this has been asked, but any way to get the prime numbers out of the client or a way to grep them from the logs?  .. also is their a way to reference them to already existing found ones more in the math community side of things?

primechain and primeorigin are in the getblock output.

Refer to this thread for existing world records of these chains:

Yes. If you're paranoid you can reload the blockchain.

Anyone working on a GPU miner yet? Here's some help: http://www.macs-site.net/CudaPrimes.htm

Hopefully not, because:
1) Primecoin looks to be GPU-resistant, it will be very hard to implement calculating it's long integers on something that is design to deal only with vertices
2) GPU rigs are the cancer for mining, eliminating 99% of regular people who are not OK with the idea of monster cases with external GPUs all over the place, laptop users with no external cards, etc. Non-existence of GPU miner is the main reason for Primecoin's unusual popularity. People are successfully mining even on Raspberry Pi's.

It can be done on GPUs. Look up CUDA Lucas. Its used for finding mersenne primes. Verifies primes over 10 million digits long in days.

Oh, I see it now. Primecoin CPU mining is doomed, in a few weeks legions of BTC-ASIC-kicked-GPU-farmers will jump on Primecoin and no one will ever find a block again.

I'm not a gpu farmer but I think its better to have people that invested in crypto reap the benefit than botnet owners. I like cpu mining but once a coin becomes big botnets step in. So i see gpu mining as good progression.

ty, how do I do that? google/reinstalling primecoin isn't helping.

300pps several hours without XPM is more normal than normal...

Is it really possible that somebody has it's cores maxed to 100% and not noticing he has a bot? Bot-nets are dangerous for stealing passwords, but will they be dangerous for mass-mining?

Yes, some botnets mine in the shadows of masses like litecoin. A large increase there is not noticed like on smaller coins. Plus the botnets are used for DDOSing the exchanges. So they are very harmful to the crypto community.

Hey! Are you going to offer a compiled version for win7 64 as well? or is it only for linux?

"And no one will ever find a block again" Huh So.. I guess the solution would be to not CPU mine it then.. Strangely stupid comment.

I have few pi's...

Yes, I'm thinking primecoin solves many of my complaints about bitcon... Fast block confirms, potential resistance to specialized hardware, and no coin limit.

All I think are glaring flaws, but the last is the biggest. It's hard to reconcile the advantage of bitcoins fixed number of coins against the fact that they're still being rapidly issued.

Now, if only primecoin could adopt a more marketable/catchy name...

Is there a paper wallet generator anywhere for XPM?

If you know the address version, you can use vanitygen to generate addresses.

Looking at this, it appears that Primecoin's address version is 23.  I've just added a couple of scripts to my vanitygen fork to make creating bulk wallets and paper wallets easier.

To have vanitygen create a Primecoin address, try this

Code:
vanitygen -F compressed -X 23 A

For bulk-wallet usage, try this, which will generate 10 addresses:

Code:
./bulkwallet.sh 23 A 10 | ./paperwallet.sh >paperwallet.html

View and print the resulting paper wallet in the browser of your choice.  Since we're using vanitygen, the pattern can be more than a single character.  If you have a little more time, try this:

Code:
./bulkwallet.sh 23 AFoo 10 | ./paperwallet.sh >paperwallet.html

Why is coin limit a flaw? That's the one major advantage of Bitcoin. Controlled and finite supply of currency. Faster block confirms result in more forks, nothing more. Potential resistance to specialized hardware? I don't think so, I am sure we can use CUDA here.

CUDA is a Nvidia only technology, so people who invested into GPU mining rigs won't benefit from a CUDA miner.
